Lunch at The Kitchen

We love good food here at The Kitchen. Food that’s local, from the heart and downright delicious. And we love serving it in the gorgeous, light-filled space that is our restaurant with stunning views across the Park, River Esk and out to the historic Orangerie. We have child-friendly menus plus vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free options.

We do accept walk-ins but would recommend booking online before your visit as we wouldn't like you to be disappointed if we're fully booked!
